Driveshaft talk

Ok, about to order my front dshaft. Question I have is how much slip to expect with the 4 link. Will 6" be fine? I know it has to do with relation to where your links are in conjunction with the front tcase output, but wondering how much the dshaft will actually slip, with a linked rig.

My rear 4 link uses less than 1/2 inch of travel. I'd think 6" would be plenty.

That's the standard slip


I'm basing this off what a vendor had told me. So I'm clarifying. I know 6" is a lot in that case, so I'm tryin to hear from more sources.

This was the pm from a vendor on another site
